I think it is good to note the demographics. The patient is female and old. That, along with the constipation, made me lean more towards diverticulitis. IBD usually develops in younger persons.

privatejoker  Does the obviously darkened area not point at all towards ischemia of any kind? Maybe I am blind, but I don't see anything that remotely looks like an obstructive diverticulum in this picture. I feel like I would have gotten this question correct if no picture had been provided at all because the symptoms described absolutely pointed towards diverticulitis otherwise. I actually changed my answer because of the image lol
sahusema  Picture is a bullshit distractor
